Beaches near Muscat Oman

I am going on a cruise next month. We have 2 days in Muscat, one of the days we would like to visit a nice beach.

The cruise line offers a trip to a beach but it is far too expensice (£37!). We therefore just want to get a taxi to a nice beach ourselves.

Can anyone recommend a good beach not too far away from the port whihc has some nearby facilities e.g. shops, some where for a drink etc.

Thank you

ODC, as if you aren't lucky and go at low tide, there no point to go. Only good point is that this area of Muscat is so beautiful, with the road in the middle of the mountain, without speaking of the color of the mountains.

I lived 1 year and half in Muscat and every single week endI use to go to a beach in Qurum, close to PDO recreation center. There is no shop over there so the best is a stop at a pertol station and buy some drink/food. The beach is a good place for snorkelling and if you're lucky enough, you can see turtles, cuttlefish....

Otherwise you can go to Marjan beach, with restaurant around it. Nice view
